Their sandwiches are pretty good. The fries? Not so much. Service was ok. If you want a quick bite, good place to stop.

They have the best Philly cheese steak sandwiches I have had in California. They serve them on Amorosa rolls that they have shipped from Philadelphia. You can also get Tastykake and Frank's soda to compliment the Philly feeling.

Philly's Best is a neighborhood treasure. We can always depend on a great meal when we eat at this little cafe. They offer great sandwiches and for those of you who don't want a traditional cheese steak, they offer deli sandwiches using Boar's Head deli...More

They have excellent omelettes and many choices for lunch. The prime roast beef sandwich is very good. The waitress's are very nice and the food comes out fast. If you enjoy beer, their draft beers are one of best.
